MCU Phase 3: 20 Easter Eggs & References Marvel Should Sneak In
S.W.O.R.D. is an organisation that is essentially a space counterpart of the better known S.H.I.E.L.D. who have strong associations with the Earth-based espionage organisation. As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand further in to the cosmos, it would be cool to see some evidence of the organisation's existence in the franchise, as S.H.I.E.L.D. have so far been the glue that has held the Earth-based characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe together and S.W.O.R.D. could provide the same role for the space-based characters. All it would take is the organisation's logo appearing in the background of a scene in, for example, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel to provide a neat Easter egg that would serve as a foreshadowing of the organisation's future appearances. In fact, in a deleted scene from the first Thor movie, S.W.O.R.D. were mentioned as Erik Selvig was briefly shown running simulations on wormholes using S.H.I.E.L.D. and S.W.O.R.D. data.
